Dr.Seiderman explains in this video a common misunderstanding about ADD/ADHD.
Drugs used to treat ADD may not be necessary. Concentration problems can also be caused by eyes not working in together as a team. Vision therapy can correct this issue without drugs. Drugs are over prescribed – probable 3 out of 5 diagnosis of ADD is misdiagnosed.
